This is the best way to show your Cub Scouting pride on Facebook

Share your Cub Scouting pride with friends, family members and that classmate from high school you’ve been meaning to get back in touch with.

With these new Facebook profile picture frames, you can show that you’re a proud Cub Scout mom or Cub Scout dad or part of a proud Cub Scout family.

The fine folks on the BSA’s Cub Scouts team created these frames, and you can add them to your Facebook profile photo in seconds.

The frames serve two equally awesome purposes: one, they tell the world that you’re a big part of this incredible movement called Scouting, and two, they invite your Facebook friends to ask you for more information about joining your Cub Scout pack.

First, see what the frames look like. Then read how to add one to your photo.

Cub Scout profile picture frames: three options

I’m already starting to see these frames pop up on Facebook, which is awesome.

How to add a Cub Scout profile picture frame on Facebook

  1. Head to
  2. Search for one of the following depending on the type of frame you’d like to add:
    • “Scout Fam Profile Picture Frame”
    • “Scout Mom Profile Picture Frame”
    • “Scout Dad Profile Picture Frame”
  3. Select your desired frame and scale your profile photo as needed. This way you can avoid blocking key parts of your photo with the additional graphics. You also have the option to swap in another photo by selecting “Change Picture.”
  4. Select “Use as Profile Picture,” at the bottom of the page to make your changes final. You can set a timeline for how long you’d like to keep this frame on your profile, as well.
  5. Be Prepared for your friends and family to be in awe of your photo’s cool, new look.


  1. The suggested search terms will not lead you to the frames. Just search for “scout” and scroll down a bit. Otherwise, you will be looking for awhile like I was.

  2. I’m not sure why my previous comment was removed. I tried to follow search terms listed and they didn’t work (I scrolled for several minutes and they didn’t come up). I provided the search term that I used to get it to work.

    In the future I will just refrain from commenting.

    • Hi, Stephen. Your comment wasn’t removed. I moderate each comment, so sometimes it takes me a few hours to get to all of them.

      • Thanks. My first comment popped up after I added my second one and I couldn’t delete my second comment. I was just surprised when I was showing someone else and my comment wasn’t there. Sorry about that.

  3. I would like to make my own frame for our pack or have someone help me make one that directly recruits for our pack. Anyone have any experience with making these?
